I've purchased a couple of comparable desks from Pier One for double the money and there is no difference. This looks good, was easy to put together and is very functional. I received it in 4 days and in perfect condition. I'm ordering another one right now.
The bottom shelf is about 11.5" tall, almost 13" wide, and 15.5" deep. The top shelf is almost 9.5" tall, almost 13" wide, and 13" deep. So no, you can't put a mid or full sized computer case on a shelf.
I didn't read the instructions and I messed up the top of it. DOH! Other than that, packaged well, easy to assemble, light weight, and sturdy. Color matches other espresso finishes that I own.
Its a nice desk heavy, but the screws for the leg on the right side (the one without the shelves) never stayed put. The leg pulled apart constantly and eventually broke off completely. I tried rescrewing and using wood glue, but it would not stay put. I've had the desk for less than 6 months.
I have been looking for a desk I could fit in my bedroom where I could do my make-up...instead of the bathroom sink. I really like this one because it does not take up too much space and has a more open look. The make up bench fits perfectly under the desk top and when I sit there is plenty of knee room. I put seldom used items in baskets on the shelves to the left. They are easily accessible when I need them but not taking up space on the top. I am very pleased with my purchase. It is exactly what I needed.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Right on
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Smooth finish and sturdy. My husband used wood glue when he was putting it together so it should stay tight.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Right on
I needed a small desk that I could incorporate into my living room without turning my living room into an office. This desk is perfect. The scale is small so it's unobtrusive but it's very functional. I use this as my main desk when I get home from work in the evenings and on weekends. I have it sitting behind the sofa so no-one walking into the room can really see the desk unless they really look for it. The lower shelf on the left is not quite big enough for the printer I have sitting there but it works as a place to store the printer.
My husband put it together in a couple of hours and the only problem he had was a nut or bolt that broke in half - with one half in his hand and the other half in the desk. Seems to be sturdy even given that so we're not too worried about it.
Overall, I'd recommend it.
i had the a-frame desk for my office with just enough to hold the printer and a few things. i liked it so much i ordered one for a spare room that i did over and it holds a lamp and few knick knacks...it's just enough for a small area and i liked the style.
I needed a table/desk to use as a vanity since our bathroom is very small. This took careful assembly but other reviewers warned to read the directions thoroughly before beginning the assembly and we did as directed and found it to be very manageable to assemble. We had fun doing it and it fits perfectly in the space we had available. The color was true to the pictures as was design and so far we are very pleased. We did not use wood glue as suggested by one reviewer but the desk seems solid. I can't say how it will hold up because we just got it but we expect it will serve us well for a long time because we can't see any flaws that would cause a problem. Also, use coupon codes. We got this item for an extremely reasonable price. Very pleased.
I bought this desk because i have limited space in my apartment room. It fits perfectly and looks stylish! Took me an hour to put together... i was kind of slow at it though. Overall i absolutely love this desk and will keep it around for a very long time. Only downside is you need a pretty small chair if you want it to fit in the hole all the way. I ended up getting the smallest chair at stables in a brown color an it looks fantastic, very matchy matchy :)
We purchased this desk for our living room. It looks great - not too bulky and a bit more stylish than a traditional desk. It was easy to assemble and is good quality for the price you pay. The desk is described as espresso, which to me is a very very dark brown. This desk is not as dark as I expected. Still looks great though!
what is the distance between the shelves on the left and the legs on the right side, ie the space where the chair would go.dgardner on May 16, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi dgardner, from the shelves on the left to the feet on the right this desk measures 24 inches wide for chair clearance. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on May 22, 2014

I have no idea how to put the table top on and the shelves. I see no holes for screws and they just don't screw in. Am I going to have to bust out the gorilla glue? HELP!!!!kristencap on Mar 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
IT'S A NIGHTMARE TO PUT TOGETHER. I DIDN'T THINK ABOUT GORILLA GLUE. THINK IT WOULD WORK?sharon216 on Apr 25, 2013
The cams or bolts hold the screws in place. My partner and I put this together last week. Maybe take a break and look at the instructions with "fresh eyes". Good luck!cornerstonecounsel on May 30, 2013
